The Market

On Friday morning, before leaving Uster, Peter asked me if I wanted to go with him to the outdoor marketplace.  We drove to downtown Uster, which unlike the downtown districts of many cities in the U.S., is pleasant and thriving and filled with independent shops.  On the plaza in front of the "Stadthaus" (city hall) a daily market is held.

In the background you can see the steeple of the principal church and the tower of the castle.

A couple of stands sell fresh baked goods.

Others offer organic fruits and vegetables.

One stand had exotic fruits imported from Africa.

The flower vendor sold not only cut flowers, but also arrangements and flowers to plant in your garden.

It was small compared to the large "tianguis" (outdoor markets) of Mexico, but, in typical Swiss fashion, it was tidy and organized and everything was of high quality.
